combined with the usual 'if it does not download in a moment, use this link' thing.
Is there a specific reason for not just starting with a plain link in the first place? This has always drove me nutz, because I'm forever having to hit the "This Link" link while wondering why the hell they didn't just start with something that works. ...Fixing things with damage perhaps?

Given the tendency of search engines to shred a site looking for your particular set of key words, I doubt I ever hit the main page of a site more than 10% of the time.

We'll never get people to stop ticking boxes, mashing buttons, and clicking through hyperlinks with that attitude.

Is mousing around still OK?
That...Depends on who you're with...

Everytime I save, create files or folders it is created with "administrators" owner.

(...Create the file) Where? If it is in your My Documents folder then that could be a bit odd. On the other hand, if it's on the root of C: then that (ain't just yours...) would track with letting other/all administrators have full access/control of it.

Let's see app, how much can you sell a Toyota Camry 2000 in 2010, same config?

Who cares? They're disposable crap cars. Now what would a completely original 65 Mustang fastback, 53 Corvette split window, or a 57 Chevy sell for these days?!? (hehe)

Some "Classics" actually do stand the test of time. Because (they actually have substance) their value isn't based on their scrap weight. We're not exactly trying to compete with the fashion tragic FaceBook crowd here now are we?

This grandstanding carrot-on-a-stick game is childish. If you really have so many grand ideas, then share a few. So they can be viewed on their own merit. Nobody really saw a problem with the Conestoga wagon trains...until they saw the new trains being pulled by a steam locomotive. Show us that kind of leap (which you purport to have - If you are only bowed to...).

...Then (and only then), if the idea is shot down, you will have fair reason to bitch (IMO).

I'm curious about one thing in the original post - what's the problem with "mass nouns"?

It's a matter of proper jargon and using the correct term. It would be like calling a hard drive a "stiff drive".

Okay, I did have to google the term to find out what it was ... But that don't sound like it:

Quote from: short answer
For example, the same set of chairs can be referred to as "seven chairs" and as "furniture"; though both chair and furniture are referring to the same thing, the former is a count noun and the latter a mass noun.

...Either way I have heard the news folk screw it up.

Ouch you guys really have no idea... 'nuff said. best of luck. cheers.

Which is both true and precisely the point everyone has been trying to make. We have no idea what is actually on your mind...because you won't just say it. You've made your stand, and drawn a crowd, but only fain at substantive "solutions".

If you truly have an idea, simply say "...and here's my idea [insert idea]". Playing this AA style first-you-must-admit-there's-a-problem game isn't really helping anyone ... Now is it?
3238  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Microsoft unveils new UI prototype - Windows 8? on: February 27, 2011, 11:49:30 AM
As I understand, Surface is still thousands of dollars. It will be a little while before that technology is affordable for the mass market.

The thousands of dollars part was only for the infrared camera (in the base to watch for fingers), and the commercial (restaurant) quality heavy Plexiglas tabletop for the UI. The software was fairly basic and the computer used for all the back-when demos was a bog standard off-the-shelf machine.

With the touch screens available today, all MS really needs to launch it is an OS designed around it and an updated marketing plan.

Okay, running with Win7 x64 SP1 now on the home dev machine. Haven't done much (just logged in after reboot), but it went surprisingly quick (5-10min) and still runs...

In IE8, highlight the center part you want, right click the highlighted text and select Print Preview, from the middle drop down select print "As selected on screen".
3242  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: [Humor]: An update is available for your computer! on: February 25, 2011, 11:32:42 AM
We use Kaseya to manage updates (and etc.) for the office and client networks. So I have a central point to approve updates (or not) for everyone at once. That way I can wait a few days to see if there is any screaming before pushing out any given update to 100 machines scattered across the countryside.

At home I just use automatic downloading and let me choose when to install. That way I can time when to do what, because the reboot question is frequently dependent on what is running at the time the patch is installed.

I think I only rebooted about 8 times last year.

I'd find it funnier if I could make out what the console stuff said. I feel like I am missing the punchline.

Imagine what happens when Watson evaluates whether the answer is good or not...
If by good, you mean valid, and he formatted himself in the middle of the show ... Yeah that would be hysterical.

HBGary/HBGeary I had a feeling I spellt that wrong... smiley

Their problem was the front door had a set of keys left in it ... In the form of unvalidated SQL input being allow to execute against the server. Which is how the table got "dumped". This allowed all of the bruteforcing to be done off-line on fast (and distributed) hardware. No more internet connection speed slowing down the number of attempts per second.

I've had days like that, glad you got it straightened out. I'd asked the HP regional troubleshooting specialist about it, But only got run through the stuff already tried.

Hotkeys and remote desktop are notoriously unpredictable, are you running the RDP session windowed or full screen? Full screen sessions generally make for much more predictable hotkey use.

Just a Thought... smiley

Anything else done to reduce the complexity or length in order to make it more suitable for human use will reduce the level of security.

Not necessarily. As I suggested before in another thread, three way login forms can be very powerful.

You can't mass brute force a photo upload for an image captcha unless you have access to the home storage file already but even then you have to know each users' specific thought process and which personal photo they are using to access something.

Okay, from a front door perspective only...I'd agree - I find the user, pass, pic, phrase logons much less annoying and effective than capachas which are easily defeated with OCR. But... That's not what we are (or the thread is) discussing.

The question on the table was regarding the HBGeary fiasco. Where the User Table had already been dumped via SQL injection. So the additional bits of info (pic & phrase) could simply be read from the next column over, and would afford no further resistance.

So the discussion was really focused on how complex does a password really need to be to keep it from being Hash Cracked in a matter of hours (e.g. it's all straight up back door stuff).

It's for CLI users and pure keyboard users. My guess is that just as the KDE file manager combined both file browser and web browser, Chrome will do this + a terminal.

...Isn't that the exact same (high level of integration) behavior that had everybody pissed-off at Microsoft (rampant security hole) about 5 or 6 years ago?

You can get VS2003 from there, but can you get the VCToolkitSetup.exe for the VC2003 Toolkit package?

Nope, I missed that distinction earlier ... embarassed ... Only the full VS.NET 2003 is available.
